Well I started 3 baits the 1st week of July. One is being hit regularlly, the other 2 are pretty slow. Started 2 more this week. This is my first ever attempt at baiting in bears. I'm using corn, grease, splenda, and chocolate covered cherries. Seems they have a sweet tooth, because they aren't into the corn. I also have alot of young pumpkins in the garden and have put out a few that they ate. Anyway, the season in Wisconsins zone C opens Sept. 7. I need to keep them interested, The area I hunt has other hunters baiting. Talked to one last week, he's being hit as well. Any veterain bear hunters have any tips?
